ROAD TRIP

Comments Off on ROAD TRIP

29 SEPTEMBER – 17 DECEMBER 2022

As a pillion passenger on a Goldwing in road trips of 2014 & 2018, through the deserts & mountains of California, Arizona and Nevada, Emma catalogued everything from the vast open vistas and iconic landmarks one would expect to find on this journey to the somewhat bizarre & ironic.

In this trip, the stuff of the silver screen is actually there in front of you.  It’s real – the things you recognize from cult movies; immaculately preserved muscle cars; beautiful mid century modern design & the gritty day to day in the wilds of America.

‘Road Trip’ goes beyond the sandy mountainous route, and throws in some tantalizing gems in unexpected places.

DRIVE

Comments Off on DRIVE

To 17 December 2022

Mikolaj Karczewski’s experimental vision coupled with his love of cars and eye for detail make for incredible paintings.

In his new ‘Flooded Landscape’ series which includes the Giallo Modena (Yellow) Ferrari FF, Mikolaj points out that to many observers, this is a catastrophic view.  Yet at the same time, it can be taken as a commentary on global warming and climate change.  Negated by many, this scene might at some point turn this setting into a usual occurrence.  Detaching the car from the ground by introducing a layer of water in between generates an unusual setting – with the story of distorted reflections captured by the body of water.

In the experimental ‘Pool’ series, the regular, geometric, sharp lines of pool tiles are counter-balanced by the smoothness of water surface and the car body, all complemented by the layers of light rays embracing Taycan’s aerodynamic shape.

On lighter, observational paintings, Mikolaj beautifully captures the matte texture of wet concrete and sparkling raindrops we can often overlook on a rainy day.

WATER EXHIBITION

Comments Off on WATER EXHIBITION

From rivers to seas to aquatic life, and a little rain thrown in for good measure, water inspires creativity, and it’s reach is broad.  From illustration to painting, photography to sculpture, crafting to home decor, and so much more.  It lends itself to activities that promote our well-being, whether through high-octane active sport or relaxing river-side with a rod in hand.

On the ground floor, work from Danni Bradford includes her largest piece to-date: ‘Silver Darlings’, a 3-dimensional shoal of sardines, hand painted and gilded in silver leaf on 6 layers of toughened glass.  We are also thrilled to be the first to exhibit Danni’s ink & paper studies, highlighted with 24 kt gold leaf.

In our ‘portal’, the Soothing Souls figures from Rach Wellbeing represent loved ones looking over you.  Be they family, friends or pets, these figures are inspired by Rach’s love of meditation and of water with the calmness & energy it brings.

The mezzanine level showcases a selection of water-inspired photographs that follow our founder Emma’s journeys both from home and away.

Sybarite Collaboration

Comments Off on Sybarite Collaboration

The concept of our suspended installation ‘The Invisible String’ by Taylor Zhou was inspired by the children’s book of the same name that Taylor reads with his daughters at bedtime to explain what love is.

The essence of the story is that we are all connected to our loved ones by an invisible string, no matter where we are.  Being connected by the invisible string means no one is ever truly alone, which is an especially important message during the pandemic, where people are feeling increasingly isolated.

Taylor is an associate architect at Sybarite in London, where he has worked for just under a year.  Originally from China, he has been living in the UK for the past 23 years.

Love Exhibition

Comments Off on Love Exhibition

As we emerge from the troubles and strife of 2021 and begin this new year, let’s open it with LOVE.  Love is like an invisible string that connects us emotionally, be it to friends, family, lovers or even to our ‘self’.  

Love means many things to many people.  It’s not just desire, not just a symbol.  It can be maternal, paternal, brotherly or sisterly.  It can be a way of life, about the way we live, about things that we cherish and that bring us joy, or the things that make us reflect on who we are.  

In our second exhibition we visually explore the concept of LOVE, through the obvious, and perhaps less-so.  Friendship, family, self-discovery and sensuality are key to the photographs chosen from our Open Call, and the art work by Nagual Creations takes symbolism to dizzyingly detailed heights.  

A selection of images from the exhibition are available to order.  If you would like to receive a PDF of available artists, please get in touch by clicking ‘ENQUIRE’
